Life In Between

Sometimes you find yourself in between. Whether it’s in between jobs, houses, boyfriends, or simple in between lunch and dinner. Being in between affects all of us differently. I for one, don’t have much patience for these in between periods. I hate not knowing what’s on the other side and where I’m going. I like knowing everything… and sometimes you can’t. Sometimes you just have to wait and see what happens next. Another way of “going with the flow”.

When I feel stuck in between two things with the past behind me and god-knows-what ahead of me, I feel uneasy. Obviously, that’s to be expected. I feel like it happens all too often though. For the past 4 years, there have only been a few moments… maybe weeks, when I actually felt like I was in a comfortable place in life. I have a hard time “being still” and just waiting. Maybe it’s because I’m naturally an uptight person… I don’t know.

Why does there always have to be an in between time we must all endure? And why does it have to take so long to get to the other side sometimes? Is it just me, or is it like that for everyone?

I don’t know what is ahead for me in life. It’s all so unsure right now, even with my husband’s wonderful job locked down. There are just so many ifs in life. I know I can’t control everything, but sometimes I wish I didn’t live so much of my life in between.

    I completely get you on this. I have struggled with this many times in my life and it’s never fun. I learned a few years ago (through a very difficult lesson that the Lord was trying to teach me) that I had to accept the fact that life is full of it. It wasn’t an easy lesson, but eventually, i ‘got it’. Life has been easier in a multitude of ways.

    Don’t worry Tiger, you’ll get there. All that crappy waiting has delivered some pretty awesome blessings to you as of late, hasn’t it? 😉

    Love you girl!
